Also, what's with people with big dobs always having smaller cars? It is a trend that I've noticed. It's like the challenge of hauling around a big dob wasn't enough so you want to try to do it with smaller and smaller cars to add to the accomplishment.


I don't think it's an astronomy trend or challenge as much as it is an overall social trend having to do with constantly fluctuating and elevating gas prices. While I miss my pickup truck I sure don't miss the all too frequent and expensive stops at the gas pumps.

Tony you mean the 16.5" on virtually all galaxies and nebula? If not Id be interested in your take.

Thanks,

Pete
